East Dragons Swimming named International School (Mythical) World Champions 2016/2017

East Dragons Swimming named International School (Mythical) World Champions 2016/2017

This summer swim coaches across the world received the message below from Matt Lautenbach regarding international school swim rankings. Matt who is the Head Swim Coach at Cairo American College complied a rankings list of the top swimmers and teams from international schools last year. He used all the conference meets that were swum by high school and put together this comprehensive list.  His email message and website link appear below.

Incredibly UWCSEA East ranked as the top international school in the world 2016/2017. A title that should be viewed with some caution of course, as we are still very much a developing programme, and have a long way to go to be a truly great team. However, considering our inclusive team nature it is an amazing achievement none the less.

Congratulations to all the swimmers, coaches and parents who have been involved in building this team since 2011. It is an honour to work with such an incredible bunch.

Congratulations as well to the UWCSEA Dover Phoenix Swimming who were ranked 13th Boys, 5th Girls, and 6th Combined in the International School Mythical Team Title.

Lets keep up the positive attitude and keep moving forward.

Coach Smith

From Matt Lautenbach, Head Swim Coach at Cairo American College

Hello Athletic Directors and Swim Coaches,

You are receiving this email because your team had a high school swimmer that finished among the top 25 in an event among those competing for international schools. Throughout the last year, I have compiled the top 25 times in shared events from multi-national International School league meets. These can be found at the following website. This is not a completely straight forward process since different leagues have different events, entry limits, ages and timing. Therefore, a bit more of the methodology used is listed on the site. 

I would like to congratulate the following schools on their Mythical International School Title:

Women: Hong Kong International School
Men: UWCSEA East
Combined: UWCSEA East

Along with continental team champions: 

Women
Asia: Hong Kong International School
Africa/Middle East: American International School of Johannesburg
Europe: American School of London

Men
Asia: UWCSEA East
Africa/Middle East: American British Academy of Muscat
Europe:  American School of London
South America: The International School of Nido de Aquilas

Combined
Asia: UWCSEA East
